There’s a difference between making a point and complaining.

None of this is true. Cizikas has never played wing, at least not enough times to say he's a multiple-position player and Clutterbuck has played RW for literally his entire career.

If you can find me 3 instances in the last 5 years that players with career-high's of around 30pts that carried cap hits of more than $3M were traded, without massive sweeteners added, I will retract everything I said.

I meant up and down the lineup meaning any of the lines, not different positions. I wrote the wrong thing. That being said. I certain Cal can take draws and Casey is heady enough to play wing if need be.

As for me finding previous examples, I would need to google and look that up which I cant do now. I also find that request to be ridiculous, because anything can happen even if its not the norm. Star players who captain teams don't leave at the 25th hour but we just saw it happen. But, I will say that both Cal and Casey can play PK, and PP2 on any team. Both can take draws if need be, and both play a tenacious game. Neither make the kind of money or have the kind of term needed to sweeten any deal...

We have 8 million in cap space right now but what about in 2030?

I get that then Johnston shouldn't have been in the conversation because it has no effect
- Vukota

Again, “not only referring to Johnston” ya (frank)ing douche😂. Whatever neither of us will ever agree with each other on this topic so move on. Let’s talk about Komorov’s contract now😂

I'm gonna bow out of this one, too. I've argued enough today and I will agree with you that we'll just have to agree to disagree. I don't have it in me anymore.

Finally some common sense on this thread. This is why I don’t care about contracts or who is the minors. Who cares? This is Trotz and lou team and when need be they will address the situation. People are still wrapped in the snow thinking. He is gone move on and enjoy the season

When you really think about it Johnston has the best contract on the team. If you produce you're dirt cheap and if you suck you get banned to the AHL with no cap hit

Actually that's Barzal 3rd best cost-per-point in the league last year

Rick, if Cizikas or Clutterbuck get traded and we didn't have to cough up a major asset to facilitate the deal I will kiss you directly on the mouth, with tongue, and apologize.
